Georgia Parents Charged With Death of Baby Girl

The Atlanta parents of an infant girl found dead in their home earlier this month have been charged with murder.

Police were called to the southwest Atlanta home on August 10 and found the unresponsive baby.

She was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

An autopsy revealed that the girl’s injuries were “consistent with inflicted trauma.”

Police released body camera video of the arrest, showing both suspects walking out smoking cigarettes.

Byrd and Turner are being held at the Fulton County Jail without bond.
